Ep. 6 - (ft.) Peter Boghossian: Academic Epistemology

April 7th, 2020

In this episode, I speak with Dr. Peter Boghossian about where academic philosophy stands in the modern university system. We discuss the problems that it and other humanities create for themselves and for the public, and how to reform the standards in the field by injecting a scientific and Socratic standard.
